Christopher Campbell has posted the first public announcement following the shuttering of the last of his four Braddah's Island Style casual restaurants. Since May, the "Hawaiian/Mexican Fusion" concept has been losing locations, with the last outpost closing in October.
Debuting in July 2103, Braddah's served burritos, bowls and tacos and rapidly expanded to the westside, close to UNLV, the southwest and Centennial. Aiming to infuse some authentic "aloha spirit" into the casual scene, the build-your-own dishes were based around options like "kalua pig, pulehu steak, huli huli chicken, grilled fish and grilled veggies."
Braddah's had attracted a following for its dessert specialty, "Coconut Bark," created with a "sweet toffee bottom, cracker middle, chocolate top that was dusted with pink salt and coconut," but it wasn't enough to financially support the restaurants.
Campbell has now transferred his energies and started a Kickstarter campaign to fund full time production of the bark and distribute nationally. His goal is $50,000.
